WILLIAMSTOWN, MA -- On Monday, October 12th the Williams College men's and women's cross country teams engaged in their annual day of service in the local community.

The Ephs had a great time serving the community in a variety of ways that directly impact both the people in their neighborhood and the environment that the teams enjoy and appreciate running in.

Some team members chose to do a road clean up on roads close to campus that they frequently train on. In particular, there is a section of Route 43 in Williamstown that is cleaned regularly by the Eph teams as part of the national Adopt A Highway Program.

A larger group of Ephs hauled logs and worked in the fields at Peace Valley Farm in Williamstown, where much of the local food eaten in campus dining halls is grown.

Further, two small groups traveled to nearby North Adams, to serve at the Berkshire Food Project soup kitchen.

All of the Eph runners had reported that they had a wonderful time continuing the tradition of their teams serving the community around them.
